Painting With Straws and Bubbles

This is a very easy art project you can do with kids of all ages, even 3 y.o.

Materials: plastic cup (as many as the colours you want to use), water, dishwashing liquid, food colouring, straw, paper.

Instructions: pour water and dishwashing liquid in the plastic cup (the ratio can be 2:1) and the add some food colouring. Mix and then it’s ready to use! Place the straw inside, then over the paper blow through it. You’ll be able to make fun colourful bubbles. When there’s too much liquid in the straw, paint by blowing on it. You’ll make interesting prints.

I used blue, yellow and red with my kids. They were able to see how primary colours combine to make new ones.
